Profundamente conmovedora, La tienda roja combina una rica historia con el valor de la ficción moderna: una nueva visión de… la sociedad bíblica femenina.Su nombre era Dina y en la Biblia apenas se la menciona para referirse a un violento suceso de venganza que protagonizaron su padre, Jacob, y sus hermanos Simeón y Levi. Única hija de Jacob entre los numerosos varones que este tuvo con Lía, su primera mujer, y con sus otras tres esposas, Zilpa, Raquel y Bilha, todas ellas hijas de Laban. Dina relata su propia historia creando una autentica evocación del mundo femenino en la época del Antiguo Testamento. En aquellos tiempos, las tradiciones, las historias familiares y los conocimientos en general se perpetuaban de generación en generación por medio del linaje materno. Y el traspaso de toda esta sabiduría tenia lugar en la "tienda roja," espacio donde se recluían las mujeres cuando no podían aparecer ante los ojos de los hombres: durante los días del ciclo femenino, después de los partos y en momentos de enfermedad. Allí, Dina explicara las historias de sus "cuatro madres," a partir del día en que Jacob apareció en las tierras de su tío Laban, así como el azaroso traslado de su familia desde las Mesopotamia hasta Canaán, y mas tarde su emigración a Egipto.Pero La tienda roja no es simplemente una reconstrucción del libro del Génesis desde el punto de vista de la mujer, sino una novela histórica minuciosamente investigada que nos introduce en el riquísimo mundo de las tradiciones mas ancestrales. Todo un acopio de normas y conductas imprescindibles para la supervivencia en tierras áridas y desoladas que, además de constituir la base de las religiones judeocristianas, siguen vigentes en algunos rincones del mundo hasta el día de hoy.
